    Hi well I was wondering a little bit about a few stocking ideas. My first would be bosemani rainbows, panda cories and if I could a pair of rams. Of these how many would be a good fit amd leave some extra room. Lastly if this wouldnt work what else could I stock a 75 gallon with. Thx

    With a 75 you have plenty of room to add a few different types of rainbows. You could also add a school or two of rasbora or tetras, and a school of panda cories!

    By any chance have you ever had bosemani rainbow because iv heard them only reaching up to 3 inches while some get up to 5 inches so about how big can they get?

    I only have praecox myself and haven't had them that long. From my reasearch I believe that boesmani normally grow to around 4 inches.

    I've not seen too many Boesemanis get to be 5 inches long. I don't know if I've seen any, actually. 3 inches is about as big as they get.

    I was also thinking about getting praecox instead. Still deciding between the praecox and bosemani.

    So just for the fun of it I put together a list of what I would put in a tank that size.

    6 x Praecox Rainbows
    9-12 Rainbows distributed among: Boesmani, Turquoise, Millenium
    9 x Panda Cories
    9 x Rummynose Tetra
    5 x Brilliant Rasbora

    Ok, now I want a 75g...

    Edit: ooh, or a 120 might be better.

    Would this work?


    8 x bosemani rainbows
    13 x panda cories
    2 bolivian rams or german rams
    10 rummynose tetra or cardnial tetra

    Or all of these without the tetra
